Edmunds Hat-Trick Tames the Lions
Sunday 11th May 2008
|AFC Codsall||6 v 0||Sedgley White Lions West|
Ryan Edmunds 26, 66, 80
A hat-trick from Ryan Edmunds capped off a remarkable season for AFC Codsall as they lifted the Surridge Sports Premier Cup with a resounding 6-0 victory over Sedgley White Lions West.
Edmunds set them on their way after 26 minutes with a clinical right foot finish and six minutes later skipper Ryan Yeomans increased the lead from the penalty spot to give the Premiership champions a half time cushion.
Codsall soon put the game beyond reach of the ‘Lions’. Chris Jones made to the goal line and cut the ball back where Steven Weaver unfortunately deflected the ball into his own net.
Edmunds made it 4-0 on 66 minutes when he fired through Sean Lewis in the Sedgley goal and then completed his hat-trick, lashing in a superb left foot strike with just under ten minutes remaining. Darryl Clegg completed the rout, heading home from a Ryan Yeomans corner.
The victory completed a remarkable season for AFC Codsall, after previously claiming the Premiership title and Birmingham County FA Sunday Junior Cup.
